    No More Foreign, H-1B visa, Tech Workers Needed

    Microsoft Layoffs to Cut Up to 18,000 Jobs

    By NICK WINGFIELD JULY 17, 2014

    SEATTLE — Microsoft said Thursday that it planned to eliminate up to 18,000 jobs over the next year in a shake-up intended to help the company move more quickly in the market.

    The cuts are the largest in the company’s 39-year history, representing about 14 percent of its work force.


    Microsoft will make the deepest cuts from the businesses it acquired from the Finnish phone maker Nokia. About 12,500 of the jobs being eliminated will come from the Nokia groups, resulting from the closing of a factory in Hungary and other changes.


    That is about half the number of employees who joined Microsoft from Nokia a few months ago when it completed its acquisition of the company’s mobile business. In related news, Microsoft said it would no longer make Nokia phones based on the Android operating system, switching its low-end phones to Microsoft’s Windows Phone software.


    RELATED COVERAGE


    Microsoft said it would take a charge of $1.1 billion to $1.6 billion to cover severance and related costs from the layoffs over the next year.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    No more H1-b visas was my first thought when I heard the news early this morning! Would our largest employers lie to our Congress. Are'nt here laws about committing perjury to Congress? Call them in under sworn testimony!

    Sounds suspect to me given that the 1200 page senate amnesty bill had a clause that penalized companies for hiring Americans to the tune of $5000

    I haven't bought a MS product in years. I'll pirate the heck out of their sh*t though. Not a company I can support with my money.
